The pow wow`s are really good but apart from that not a lot on the reserve for tourists. If its raining dont bother as it is very muddy. food is always good and the dancers and costumes are spectacular

Drove throught this part of Ontario and when we visited we noticed numerous rustic looking huts selling cigarettes. I was always under the impression that the Six Nations peoplw were proud of their culture but the numerous huts selling cigarettes certainly gave me a different impression of this area.

If you go make sure you know where you are going....have a map because... More

To understand the First Nations, you have to visit them! You will meet a great group of people trying to make their way in a complex society. Try attending summer gathering or just go shopping and talk to the people.

Just a little over the top in pseudo-culture, I'm sad to say. Around here we are just about topped out on native 'culture' that includes blockades, sitdowns, hunger strikes and vans on fire pushed off bridges.

We often forget how rich our neighbours culture can be. Six Nations folks embody all that is good and pure about Canada. Humility, respect for the land and hospitality. Check it out. Fun and rare experience.

If you are not aboriginal, you may find yourself feeling very unwanted here. It is a small minority that feels that way, but they are very vocal and very mean spirited. They do a disservice to all native peoples, but because of the Warriors and other bad elements, this is no longer a place to visit...even in daylight!
